FS: Vintage Rolex Explorer I 1016

I have for sale this great looking Rolex ref 1016, “L” serial number Explorer from 1988 or ‘89.

I have always wanted to sell this watch but sentimental attachment kept it sitting in my safe for the past four years. I’m finally ready to sell.

Watch is in great condition and sure looks spotless from photos. On close inspection of the macro shots, I was surprised to see there are very few scratches on the crystal.
I can only assume the scratches were caused by papers that were laying on top of it, as it was kept in my safe all these years. I would imagine they are fine enough to be easily buffed out, but for my own opinion i think the watch is in great condition despite the age.

Serious buyers only, i will sell to the first who gets committed.

Priced at $8,000

Payment Method:
- Wire transfer preferred
